ENASOIT CAMP -   Laikipia Plateau.

ACCOMMODATION : THE CAMP

Enasoit Camp has 8 rooms: 6 tented cottages and 1 family tent with 2 interconnecting rooms.

The rooms are situated around the waterhole, which attracts a busy array of wildlife, easily visible from the tent verandahs.

The tents are carefully constructed using canvas and local materials, combining the romance of living ‘under canvas’ with the comfort of a permanent structure.

Each tent has an en-suite bathroom, wooden floors, a sitting area with a fireplace and private verandah.

Life in camp revolves around the open-sided Mess Tent, which overlooks the waterhole. By day, the Mess Tent offers a comfortable shaded spot from which to enjoy the wildlife and views across the plain. At night, a campfire is lit in front of the Mess Tent for pre-dinner drinks and sightings of Enasoit’s nocturnal wildlife.

LOCATION

Enasoit is located in the Laikipia highlands of Kenya - a rich and diverse natural treasure, boasting some of Kenya's most extraordinary and endangered wildlife and vast, pristine wilderness areas.

Enasoit Camp and the surrounding reserve sit within a natural wildlife corridor and the density of wildlife and biodiversity is exceptional.

Guests can explore the reserve on horseback, on foot or by vehicle always accompanied by one of our experienced guides, or they can simply watch the wildlife wander past from their verandah - enjoying both the tranquility and thrill of a safari without seeing any other visitors.

THE POOL HOUSE

The Pool House is a quiet retreat nestled on the side of a small hill a 5 minute drive or 20 minute gentle walk from Enasoit Camp. The Pool House has two thatched double en-suite cottages, as well as a sitting and dining room beside the pool, and it is surrounded by tropical gardens, which enjoy exceptional bird life.

As Enasoit is booked exclusively, guests have sole use of Enasoit Camp and the Pool House during their stay. The Pool House provides additional accommodation for larger groups and is also an alternative location for lunches and dinners, or for tranquil afternoons relaxing at the pool.
